This tastefully decoratied store front cafe is great for breakfast or lunch. My husband and I sat at a bar height table at the window. We were politely served the special quiche and breakfast wrap. Very tasty. The interior is spacious and has an area that resembles a cozy library. Nice touch. Save room for dessert because this coffee house also has very tempting baked goods. I bought the rocky road brownie and peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Delish. Kept me going on the ride home back to NJ :)

When you open the door, you are immediately greeted with smiling faces from staff and friends that you meet time and time again at GG's. The music and the smell of freshly ground Lucas Roasting Co.coffee makes you want to curl up on the couch in the back and stay the WHOLE afternoon! The tomato basil soup is the very best that I have ever tasted and the chicken salad on their Avignon sandwich cannot be matched by anyone! And if that's not enough, the pastries are fresh and made right there! I always look forward to lunch and a little "break" from my day at Gathering Grounds!

Eating here regularly since it opened. Everything they make is good. Particularly like the Mandarin Salad and Tomato Basil Soup. Great atmosphere. Innovative specials. They pay attention to details.

this is truly a "family restaurant" in the best sense! comfortable and informal, with excellent home cooking and friendly staff, and tellingly frequented by the locals. The girls (6 and 8) and we enjoyed our lunch there as much as last year, and we are already looking forward to next time!
